Rockworth Capital Partners have purchased a freehold office building, 100 Edward Street, set within Brisbane’s Golden Triangle financial precinct.

It was acquired from an investment partnership managed by Evolution Private (“Evolution”), in an off-market transaction valued in excess of $60 million.

The acquisition of 100 Edward marks RCP’s first entry into the Brisbane CBD office market, and builds on the Group’s existing Queensland retail presence including Town Square Redbank, Everton Park and Rothwell shopping centres.

Following this acquisition, RCP’s portfolio now comprises office assets in Australia’s four largest commercial real estate markets, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane.

Strategically located at the junction of Edward and Mary Streets, the property is situated on a sizeable corner site of circa 1,400sqm.

Comprising approximately 7,120 sqm of office space, the 17-storey tower has 109 car park spaces and prominent ground floor retail tenancies. 

Rob Carter and Mark Russo, Principals of Evolution stated that “100 Edward Street has been a leasing success with 25 tenants currently occupying around 95% of the building"

It was recently refurbished and has undergone lift interior and building services upgrades.

Located withing walking distance of over A$10bn of planned redevelopment and infrastructure spending, the property sits at the crossroads of the premium ‘Golden Triangle’, upcoming Queen’s Wharf and Eagle Street Pier redevelopments. 

Lim Kin Song, Chief Executive Officer of the Group stated, “the acquisition is a timely opportunity to participate in a fast-evolving gateway city in Australia, with a strategically located asset at the centre of major rejuvenation and infrastructure projects."

“RCP continues to look for investment opportunities of a similar value-add nature or counter-cyclical propositions, to provide compelling risk adjusted returns for its investor base.”

“As a mid-to-long term investor, RCP maintains a positive outlook for both the Brisbane and broader Queensland markets, particularly given the pipeline of committed infrastructure projects."

RCP 's national portfolio for Australia contains 14 office and retail assets.
